We must never forget the atrocities committed during WWII - HOWEVER, it is equally important to remember that many Wehrmacht (and later Bundeswehr) Veterans served with honour and distinction.
As a former Soldier of both the British and New Zealand armies, I feel horrified at the disrespect shown to those who served their Country and in many cases paid the ultimate sacrifice.
Regimental Traditions (unless they glorify the NAZI regime) should be off limits eg. "Dunkelbraun ist die Haselnuss" originates in the 18th century (well before WWII).
"If a race has no history, if it has no worthwhile tradition, it becomes a negligible factor in the thought of the world, and it stands in danger of being exterminated."
- Carter G. Woodson
Whilst some might consider the current policy politically correct, I find it morally reprehensible.
We would be outraged if our Veterans were treated like this, so join me in supporting the German Veterans who are being so shamefully treated by their own government.
Angela Merkel and Members of the Bundesrat, stop meddling in the affairs of the Bundeswehr and stop disrespecting your Veterans.
